Cilic thinks Berdy has a shot:

16:09

Marin Cilic walks off court with a beaming smile and now here he is chatting to the BBC's Rishi Persad: "Sam really played a high level of tennis, especially in that first set, hitting big from the back of the court. After that I just felt I was a little bit better on the returns but overall I felt the level was very, very high. I didn't feel Sam was tight at all. He pushed me to play big tennis towards the end of the match. It's definitely going to be a huge match between Roger and Tomas - an open match I feel. Roger is playing the best tennis of his career on this court which feels like home for him but whoever it will be I am concentrating on my own game."

I don't think Berdy has a chance. There's a real reason someone like him with talent, fitness and build has not broken thru to date.

With Trump as President, the entire world was rooting for Marin today. Sad, sad, sad....but not for much longer, given the investigations.

I reported on Ann Li's QF yesterday; not surprised at all that she is in the final: a more-than-decent all-rounder...

Federer leading 7-6 7-6... he followed some lessons at the Isner-academy

Berdy is close to winning a set though.

:) Isner is so annoying with his 7-6 7-6 6- 6-7 7-6 7-6 6-7 6-7 7-6 ... can't stand it.

I got home and the ESPN scroll said Fed dominated, so I was expecting a 6-2 (left office at 2-2) 6-2, 6-2!! This is anything but, and I'm only in the 2nd Set TB!!
